Updated November 29, 2021: In line with the government’s public health guidance, the University of Cambridge expects face coverings to be worn in all our libraries by students, staff and visitors (unless exempt). Thank you for helping to reduce the risk of further disruption and illness. 

The Betty & Gordon Moore Library offers a range of online support services and ways you can access our collections, to help you learn, teach and research. See individual reduced contact services web pages for variations in availability and consult the website regularly as we start to bring back library services to almost pre-Covid levels.
